Carriberrie is a groundbreaking new film from Dominic Allen, shot using 360 degree virtual reality technology. The film blends the ancient with the contemporary and includes performances by Sydney’s Bangarra Dance Theatre, Darwin’s Lonely Boys and traditional ceremonial dancers in Uluru. It’s narrated by legendary actor David Gulpilil.
